What Next For Limerick Football

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Terrible performance this afternoon, Derry were beatable, management and players would want to have a look at themselves and their performance levels after that. You can blame weather condition on some level but the bad shooting, passes being intercepted, marking up in the backs was sub standard and this snail paced build-up play has to be addressed. Billy Lee came out during the week to say Limerick football is on upward curve, it is clear to see it is not and its serves no purpose coming out with that rubbish. We still have lads not making themselves available,the academy has produced nothing since it has being started-up and the county board has to start looking after football better. After this season their has to be a root and branch review of football in Limerick from the top to the bottom and improve on the state we are in, there is no reason why Limerick can't be like Clare and Tipperary competing and getting results in Division 2.

One observation looking at county football league results this weekend , there appears to have been a number of high scoring one can only guess games that were entertaining. Where is the PRO of the county board to give a round up of these on Limerick radio Sunday evening mentioning a few players that played well or got important scores . This is the type of basic recognition that might lead to fellows been more inclined to give the football a go and indeed increase interest in the leagues generally which is the cornerstone of many county's grassroots .
The Desmond league will be on naming fellows who got goals in games where half the players on the field can't walk fast not to mind run .

Sincerest congratulations on a tremendous win. I've no idea how Limerick can sustain a competitive Gaelic Football team with the available resources in a county that's dominated by hurling but the current football group are clearly making the best of it and deserve great praise for a remarkable victory.

Nights like last Saturday evening are very special for teams and supporters when fortunes are at a low point. First I want to congratulate the players and management on a great win and playing good entertaining football and secondly I have eat humble pie and correct myself I was very critical of players and management during the league they deserve great credit for Saturday's win.

In fairness Dual Support, your pessimism was well founded, no-one gave Limerick a hope against Tipp. Their league & championship form in the past number of years has been poor, players are not making themselves available, possibly understandably so if they're only playing in Division 4 and with only 2 championship games more than likely to look forward to in the Summer and they're not going to be treated the same as the hurlers. Also the under age teams are not making the progress we hoped for, and making players choose between football & hurling at minor level is having a serious implications for the inter county football team. It's the classic vicious circle.

But despite all this, they played excellent football against a good team, scored 20 pts and won pulling up. The management and players deserve huge praise for that. Nights like Saturday are special but they deserve much more. One win isn't a turning point though and it remains to be seen if they can win another game in the championship. Without equal backing, the future remains bleak for Limerick football.
